The South Shore Women's Hockey League (SSWHL) consists of over 25 women's ice hockey teams representing the Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire areas. The league and it's teams are USA Hockey registered, and consist of 4 Senior Divisions - A, B, C, and D, coinciding with the USA Hockey designation for the women's divisions.
This website was created to keep those teams informed about the various aspects of the league, and is hopefully a useful resource for players wishing to get more involved with women's ice hockey, in addition to a tool for the league's participants.
The Bulletin Board section below will be a posting of all league events, and can be used to inform team administrators of meetings, players of available ice times, teams looking for players and/or coaches, etc.
Visit our sponsor page! And frequent those businesses that thru the year support our teams. If you would like your sponsor added to our sponsor page, have your team rep/administrator send the ad (logo's, website address, or some type of advertisement) to email@example.com RE: SPONSOR

COACH NEEDED FOR THE PUMAS -
The Pumas are a C2 team looking for a coach. Just moving to C2 from D this coming season. Most of the team has played together for 3+ years.
Our team performs adequately without a bench coach, but much more effectively with a bench coach. We really benefit from the direction and
leadership of a coach. Practice ice in the past has been every other week in Brookline beginning in November and running until March.
Team commitment to practice is about 60-75% of the team on any given week. Contact Dawn at email@example.com with questions or if interested.
PRACTICE ICE AVAILABLE -
The Ravens have practice ice on Wednesday nights at the Nashoba Valley Olympia in Boxboro and are looking for a team
that would like to share the ice. The cost will be split evenly between the Ravens and the other team. Each team will
use one half of the ice. Full ice drills and short scrimmages upon agreement of both teams. If interested contact
Vicky at firstname.lastname@example.org
